Call me sarcastically shocked. But according to Blacklock’s Reporter, a former espionage officer told a Canadian House of Commons ethics committee that there are politicians in Canada, federal, provincial and municipal, who are being paid by the Chinese Communist Party:
MPs, provincial legislators and city councillors are known to be in the pay of foreign agents, a former espionage officer yesterday told the Commons ethics committee. The foreign agents’ source country was not named though cabinet has accused China of clandestine activities: “What we know for sure is we have various foreign countries that succeeded in recruiting elected officials – again, municipal, provincial or federal.”
I suspect he also has names.
True North provides more details:
“We had to monitor parliamentarians. There are elected officials at all levels whether it’s municipal, provincial or federal who are being paid by foreign governments and who are not necessarily acting in the interests of Canada,” said Juneau-Katsuya.
The former intelligence chief was tightlipped on how many politicians were working with foreign states or who they were but did reveal that the practice was ongoing.
“It is still happening. Foreign agents try to recruit elected officials. It’s fairly easy because elected officials don’t necessarily listen to security guidelines to protect themselves.”
Of course, this is not just happening in Canada. READ: How the Chinese Communist Party is infiltrating local US government
